GEORGETOWN, GUYANA - First-Class leg-spinner Amir Khan recently returned from Trinidad and Tobago where he produced some scintillating performances for Moosai Cricket Club in the premiership competition.

The right-arm bowler, who has represented the West Indies at the youth level, picked up 34 wickets in five two-day games, including three five-wicket hauls.

His best figures were 6-35, while he also displayed his versatility by claiming eight wickets in five T20 games.

Khan had joined Moosai Cricket Club for the last five games of the season, because of his duties with the Guyana team in the recently concluded Regional Four-Day and Super50 tournament.

The 20-year-old said he enjoyed the stint and is now hoping to attract the bidders at the upcoming Caribbean Premier League auction, which is set for next Wednesday in Jamaica.

Meanwhile, Khan was presented with a quantity of cricket equipment by Universal Sports Managing Director, Andrew Budhan, upon his return from Trinidad and Tobago.

Budhan presented the young cricketer with a CA8000 bat, a Grey Nicholls Elite full spike footwear and an Ascis training sneakers. According to Budhan, his entity will be equipping Khan with the necessary gear as the need arises.

Khan expressed gratitude for the kind gesture, adding that he will make maximum use of the equipment to advance his career.
